  1. yeah after Sanderson took over, Tuon took a turn for the worse. I cannot stand her and I wish that she get smacked down big. I cannot believe that Brandon Sanderson would allow the Seanchan to get away after dissing Rand and the White Tower. The Seachan did not suffer any repercussions. I want Seanchan to pay dearly, and I mean, dearly for the actions they have taken.
  2. I always liked Elayne. Who I could not stand was Tuon and Egwene. Tuon is so f***ing arrogant that she needs to be taken down several pegs, I mean several and I am getting annoyed with Mat now. I always liked Mat but his constant deferments to Tuon and unwillingness to stick up for Min after she was manhandled by Deathwatch especially knowing that Min was Rand's girlfriend was sickening and so hypocritical of him.
  3. Edarra on page 319 that "the Seanchan have chained the Wise Ones. Not just the Shaido, who deserve their fate." I cannot recall any event or scenario where Rand's Aiel would have tangle with the Seanchan. The only Aiel that the Seanchan encountered are the Shaido Aiel. So am I correct in surmising that Edarra meant the Shaido Wise Ones only that have been chained?
  4. What he said, ditto. I find some posters's defenses of Seachan to be very something sort of an "apologist" like in the same way some people would gloss over the crimes and atrocities that invaders and conquerors and colonizers did in our real world.
  5. How is Jain Farstrider a DF? Why would Malkieri consider him a DF? After all, Olver said Jain Farstrider was one of the greatest heroes ever lived and he exposed Cowin Fairheart's treachery and betrayal of Malkier to the Shadow.
  6. I also have an issue with the numbers that RJ throws at, include Brandon Sanderson. But remember this is fantasy, so eh. Anyway back to the point, RJ and BS did touch on the logistics stuff like when Perrin went to So Harbor and when Mat refused to give horses to Joline and there were comments how hard it was to get horses and supplies and stuff. There were also lines and comments about starving refugees and people dying of famine and hunger. So RJ and BS hasn't forgotten about these issues.
  7. Actually, at the gap, the best strategy is to do what the 300 Spartans did against the Persian army. Defend a narrow stretch of dirt and funnel the Trollocs through and killing them, delaying the Trolloc army and forcing them to waste supplies.
  8. What was the Halls of Mourning that Mat walked through? Was it the Tower of Ghenjei?
  9. Can we have a thread about the Seanchan? I want to talk about Tuon's viewpoint and discuss how her thoughts in ToM is totally incompatible with other Seanchan viewpoints in previous novels. For instance, the Seanchan army was shocked to hear that Suroth planned assassination of Tuon and how the Seanchan people are very devoted to the long life of an Empress and yet in this ToM, Tuon says such thoughts of assassinating the Empress are normal and in fact encouraged. What gives?
  10. I especially enjoyed the scene where Elayne was watching the demonstration of the dragons and she saw Mat covering his ears and scowling and she grinned at that. Brought a smile to my face.
  11. I don't get the anger towards Elayne based on her actions. In fact, I blame it on BS and RJ for rehashing the same formula over and over. It gets too repetitive. I like Elayne and the way she thinks in terms of political and social settings. She is gonna be an awesome Queen.
  12. that will do much harm then good I think but I would damn like it Ditto. She needs a good old style smackdown that would deeply lower her eyes for years so much that even as an empress, whenever she sees Rand or a female channeler, she would lower her eyes and thus, as the embodiment of the Empire, the Empire would lower its eyes for a long time.
  13. Doesn't anyone think that Perrin made a monumental mistake in allowing the Seanchan to chain the Shaido Wise Ones, especially in the light of Aviendha's revelations? It would further allow the Seanchan to learn more about Aiel ways and use those lessons against the Aiel? It was just a short sighted move. Yeah it allowed Perrin to get the Shaido Wise Ones off their back but he could have contacted other clans' Wise Ones and use them to capture the Shaido Wise Ones instead of using the Seanchan suldams. I strongly pray and sincerely hope that the Seanchan gets a huge smackdown and the
  14. Noa the Aiel didn't blew it. They gave Seanchan every chance to return back Aiel slaves. They even offered peace offerings and gold to purchase those Aiel slaves. What did the Sesnchan do? They parade the Aiel slaves around them as to mock the Aiel and pokIng the eyes, creating blood feuds many times over. It was on the order of several magnitude worse than Laman's Sin. As I'm concerned the Aiel were in the right to fight against the Seanchan.
